Pete is co-founder and CEO of Trulia.com, which he started in order to revolutionize the real estate experience by empowering people to make better decisions. His inspiration for Trulia came from the challenges he faced during his own home research online, after which he committed to build an intuitive online search tool to help fellow home buyers locate and make sense of the vast amount of real estate information on the Web, combined with a business model that made sense for brokers and agents.
Pete is a frequent speaker at Internet, entrepreneurship, technology and real estate conferences and he has been featured by CNBC, FOX, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times. He is also a guest lecturer at Stanford's Graduate School of Business and teaches an annual Master class at Oxford's Said Business School.
Previously, Pete spent five years as a founding team member and head of global business development at lastminute.com where he was a key member of the team that built Europe's largest online travel company with over 2000 employees, over $1 billion in transactions and operations in 12 countries. Lastminute.com was acquired in May 2005 by Travelocity (Sabre Holdings) for $1.1 billion in cash.
Pete earned an MBA from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. He also received undergraduate and master's degrees in physics from Oxford (Magdalen College).
